WorldCup-Thumb

Starting now, looking up information about the World Cup within the Google Search app will pull up specific details on who's playing where, who's competing next, and who's beating whom. The World Cup takes off next week, and rather than installing a dedicated app just to get the basics, Google has you covered.

PowerDirector-Thumb

There are a handful of video editors available for Android, but CyberLink is attempting to raise the bar with the release of its popular PowerDirector software for Android tablets. Immediately upon opening the app, experienced video editors will see a UI that looks familiar to that they've been using on desktops for years, albeit much simpler. Here it is running on a Nexus 7.

The interface is somewhat cramped on this device, which is why the app requires an Android tablet seven inches in size or more to use.

For nearly half a decade, Google has been barred by a Grecian privacy authority from bringing its Maps Street View service online in the country, citing concerns of, you guessed it, privacy. After significant negotiation, last year that authority authorized Google to start using collected data from its Street View vehicles (which, in Europe, appear to be Astra diesel 5-door hatches) on Google Maps. As of yesterday, Google finally published the first street view images for Greece.

When a catchy song pops up on the radio, during a television commercial, or over the speakers of a general department store, and you don't know who is singing, it's time to whip out Shazam. Now if you live in the US and take the time to Shazam a song - allow your phone to listen to and figure out what is playing - it will reward you with $1.29 in Amazon MP3 credit.

AutoVera-Thumb

With enough money, a collection of Z-Wave devices, and a Vera smart home controller, it doesn't take much to turn your home into an intelligent fortress. There's even an Android app by Vera that puts control of everything into the palm of your hand. But if we've learned anything over the years, it's that you're not impressing anyone until there's a Tasker plugin that can automate everything for you. Now there is.

After impending Chromecast support for the service was announced around 2 months ago, TV streaming service of questionable legality Aereo has finally integrated casting into its Android client. The app, which is still officially in beta, was updated with the feature today, and the changelog notes that "this is a beta" and to report any issues with casting functionality to Aereo's feedback email.

Postmates is an app-based courier service that's grown quite popular recently, and the company is expanding its reach to tech's two hottest hubs: Silicon Valley and Austin, TX. The Silicon Valley area includes Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Mountain View, and Atherton, if you're interested in the specifics.

Postmates is actually pretty neat, if kind of expensive. The company partners locally with restaurants, stores, and other retailers to build a "menu" of items available for purchase, which you then select in the app, and a Postmate courier then accepts your order and delivers said items to your door.
